A Full Serving Of Fruit and a OneBar Giveaway!

Tracking PixelThis is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of OneBar.

If you read here often, you know I keep a pretty hectic schedule.  2 kids, yes.  But also a full time job, plus my fun time, jewelry-making, crafting, working to spruce up our new home (I’ll keep calling it new until we unpack all the boxes, haha) and writing.  There are just too many things in life I enjoy!  While we have definitely made strides toward healthier eating this year, there are plenty of times that’s easier said than done.  Like I’m not even lying when I say that lunch has consisted of a soda and a handful of crackers before.

*one moment while I hang my head in shame*

But seriously, it’s hard to eat right some days.  So when I find something like OneBar that’s a full fruit serving and perfectly portable, it’s awesome.  Because I have tried bringing fruit along.  If the soda and crackers weren’t enough, let me tell you another gem of a story.


I was on a mission a few weeks back to bring healthy snacks with me to work, and so I packed a banana in the morning.  Or so I thought.  When I got hungry, I checked my purse, and no banana.  Boo.  So I had to settle for a cookie from the break room, which was a bummer but hey, what can you do?

Oh but wait, that’s not the story.

Three days later, I was definitely smelling banana.  I looked and looked.  And no freaking banana.  I finally emptied my entire purse, and discovered at the bottom a black and smushy banana, getting banana slime all up in the seams of my new handbag.  It took me nearly an hour before I was satisfied that I had hand-washed it out of the liner.  Seriously, who LOSES a banana in her bag?   Me, apparently – I can’t even blame this on being a mom.

But the point I’m getting to is that, this is a much more exciting option for me.


No fruit slime involved.

It’s gluten-free, which is a big deal in our household with Kevin’s allergy, it doesn’t have added sugar, and it’s also nut-free in case that’s an issue for your family.  It’s got added chicory for fiber, and baobob which is an antioxidant-rich superfruit.  There’s actually a lot of really cool things about the baobob tree that you can read about on the OneBar website (like the fact that the trees are endangered and fair-trade sourcing protects them), and the OneBar is a full serving of fruit.


Because they are so perfectly portable, OneBar would love to see the places you take yours!  Share your photos on Instagram with them by tagging @theonebar.


Now I can give you all this info about OneBar, but none of that lets you taste it for yourself.  (Because let’s be honest, taste is the biggest factor, isn’t it?)  I thought they were awesome (my favorite is the cherry; Kevin loved the apple bar).  They are chewy and naturally sweet, so it tastes like a treat!  But because I can’t properly convey taste to you – OneBar is sponsoring a giveaway for three boxes free (one mango, one cherry, and one apple) to each of forty winners!

    I would eat one during a break while painting this summer. :) Loved your banana story…too funny! :)

  2. Aimee Campbell says

    Super convenient in the diaper bag! Just because I’m a stay at home mom doesn’t mean we stay at home :)

  3. Natalie Brown says

    Hi! I would take them to the beach and the pool. What a great snack to have while swimming. Thank-you!

  4. Tara DK says

    These sound perfect! I’m diabetic and a nanny, I can’t tell you how difficult it is to be sure I remember to bring snacks for myself, never mind something healthy ;)

    They make special plastic banana holders now. I think I saw them at Walmart last summer. Had the same thing happen to a lunch box when my kid had it in warm weather in their locker. What a mess.

      Really?? I totally need that!! Although in this case, losing it for 3 days probably had more to do with it than the getting squished. :P

  6. Shirley says

    These sound yummy and i would love to win. Some times I would love to have just fruit and this would fit for me.

  7. Darlene says

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the product they look so fresh and full of fruit. I would fill my desk, purse, backpack….

  8. Sarah says

    I’d bring them with me on road trips–way better than anything I can find in a gas station!

  9. Jamie V says

    I would totally take these to work to eat while my coworkers are all eating chips and candy bars!

  10. Dana C says

    I would take them to work. During the work week I hardly eat anything and this would be perfect.
